I started with vanilla cardstock and misted it with perfect pearls, distress reinker/Tea Dye/water. Images were stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and Adirondack Pigment Cranberry. The dies are Spellbinders Shapabilities, Symbology & Hdwe. Hinges. I sponged them with Encore Gold before removing them from the die. Images used are: Arte & Sm. Face/Art 4 Frames Sheet, Sentiment on the ATC/Art Phrases Stamp Sheet, Lg. Face & Flowers/Friendship Sheet.
